Video: Students join singer for fundraiser
Published 23/01/13



MORE than 30 young musicians from The Henley College performed in a fund-raising concert at the Kenton Theatre.

Click here to watch our video of the highlights of the evening.

The show, called To Remind Us, was a sell-out and raised almost £1,500 for armed forces charity Help For Heroes.

The students were joined by jazz singer and former Henley College pupil Rebecca Poole, from Nettlebed, for several numbers.

She was joined by her backing band, Stuart Henderson, Hugh Turner, Andy Crowdy, Dan Western and Danny McCormack.

Nick Heyward, frontman of Eighties pop group Haircut One Hundred, made a surprise appearance, performing his band’s hit single Fantastic Day.

Several pupils gave solo performances, including singer-songwriters Mo Evans and Phoebe Brown and composer and pianist Filipe Batista.

Emma Brown, Dan Theobald and rock band Freddie and the Freeloaders played a series of cover versions. Matthew Maltese, 17, and Miss Poole sang a duet of her song I Can’t Wait To Meet You.

The show was inspired by Miss Poole’s charity single This Is The Song, which was Help For Heroes’ official theme in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday last year. Pupils were asked to think of someone important in their lives when choosing their songs. Miss Poole said: “It has been quite a moving experience — my distant memory of college is a fond one and I only wish I’d studied more music while I was there.

“It’s incredible to see how passionate the students are about their music as well as their commitment and general level of ability. The standard of musicianship has been amazing — I’ve been incredibly inspired by them and it was a fantastic evening.”

Miss Poole’s latest track, What Happened To Romance, was named single of the week by Jazz FM, which called her “one of the brightest new stars on the jazz-pop circuit”.
